Hydraulic Drive Revolutionizes the Performance of Wooden Shells

Hydraulic Drive Revolutionizes the Performance of Wooden Shells | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it
Instead of designing for the extremely rare maximum load scenarios, why not build with minimum material input and have buildings adjust to varying dynamic loads like snow and wind? Researchers at the University of Stuttgart teamed up with Bosch Rexroth (an engineering firm specializing in drive and control technologies) to create an ultra-lightweight wooden shell which owes its adaptive structural behavior to a specifically designed hydraulic drive system. SmartShell is only four centimeters thick, covers a surface area of 100 square meters (1076 square feet), and features hydraulic drives positioned at its four support points. The system produces imperceptible movements and adjusts the shell’s geometry to compensate deformations and ma...

Mirando las Lágrimas bajo el microscopio revela un hecho impactante.

 

Un día, Rose-Lynn Fisher preguntó si sus lágrimas de dolor se verían diferentes en comparación con sus lágrimas de alegría, así que ella comenzó a explorarlas de cerca con un microscopio.

Estudió 100 lágrimas diferentes y encontró que las lágrimas basales (las que nuestro cuerpo produce para lubricar los ojos) son drásticamente diferentes de las lágrimas que se producen cuando estamos Tajando la cebolla. Las lágrimas que se producen a partir de la risa dura ni siquiera están cerca de las lágrimas de dolor. Como una gota de agua del océano cada diminuta lágrima lleva un microcosmos de la experiencia humana. Su proyecto se llama La topografía de las Lágrimas.

Joseph Stromberg de Collage de las Artes y las Ciencias de la Smithsonian explicó que hay tres grandes tipos de lágrimas: basales, reflex y psíquica (desencadenados por emociones). Todas las lágrimas contienen sustancias orgánicas, incluidos los aceites, anticuerpos y enzimas y se suspenden en agua salada. Los diferentes tipos de lágrimas tienen moléculas distintas. Las lágrimas emocionales tienen hormonas basadas en proteínas como la leucina encefalina neurotransmisor, que es un analgésico natural que se libera cuando estamos estresados. Además, las lágrimas vistas bajo el microscopio se cristalizan en la sal y pueden dar lugar a diferentes formas y formas. Así que hasta lágrimas psíquicas con la misma composición química pueden ser muy diferentes. Fisher dijo: "Hay tantas variables-Ahí está la química, la viscosidad, el ajuste, la tasa de evaporación y los ajustes del microscopio."
